“Talk Dirty to Me” from the album Look What the Cat Dragged In, released in 1987

Picture it. It’s 1986, your boy AE is 9. He wanders through the music section at K-Mart and stumbles across the above album cover. Through some miracle that is a mix of overworked parents and a recent monetary gift from Grandma, he is allowed to purchase the tape.

He takes it home.

He listens.

He likes it A LOT.

He doesn’t understand “Talk Dirty to Me” at all but he plays it A LOT. It’s the guitar mostly. Thanks CC.

In many ways, Poison’s music was my first introduction to a heavier sound that would eventually lead me to even heavier sounds.

You’ll hear about those later.

See what else I’ve placed on Project 365 here.
